Pressure distributions associated with stable combustion of aluminum borohydride in the airstream adjacent to the lower surface of a 13-inch chord, two-dimensional, blunt-base wing were determined experimentally. The measurements were made with the wing at 20 angle of attack in a 1- by 1-foot tunnel at Mach numbers of 2.47 and 2.96. Static-pressure increases along the lower surface and base caused by the combustion are presented along with the resultant lift increases. The lift-drag ratio of...
